eBooks by Inkling
by: Inkling Systems, Inc. • 3K
E-learners are an efficient-concerned type. Sometimes, what you want to learn doesn't require to read an entire book but a chapter or two. Inkling eBooks is your personal mobile bookshelf which provides an accessible layout to a curated collection of text-books and other learning resources. Pick entire books or chapters at your whim. Design your own programme.
At first launch, you can pick some categories to get free chapters samples. For further readings, you may purchase chapters or entire books from the Inkling's shop. It's a pity that the shop isn't integrated into the app. By now it redirects you to its mobile web version.
Besides the integrated shop, I'm also missing a social layer: sharing what you've read and discover new books from friends' recommendations would greatly enhance the app's usability.
Regardless, Inkling eBooks is a beautiful and helpful tool for those avid e-learners.
